|Is Your Company's Maternity Leave Policy Legal? The EEOC May Not Think So|
Apr. 6, 2010
Excerpt: Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, employers are permitted to provide women with leave specifically for the period that they are incapacitated because of pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions. Employers, however, may not treat females more favorably than males with respect to other kinds of leave, including leave for childcare purposes, under Title VII. Indeed, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), employers who grant more liberal leave to new mothers than to new fathers without tying that leave to a pregnancy-related disability may be guilty of sex discrimination.
